Soap studs give back at Salvation Army event!

Stars of daytime television gathered on Wednesday at the Salvation Army Center in Van Nuys to distribute food, hygiene and cosmetics donations to families. The event will be featured on the 37th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards’s telecast next month.

Victor Alfieri, Kyle Lowder and Eric Martsolf (above, L-R) were among those who lent muscle to the effort.

Young and the Restless stars Michael Muhney, Daniel Goddard and Stacy Haiduck were very enthusiastic and friendly as they handed out boxes.

Michael Muhney and Daniel Goddard are co-stars and great pals off-screen. They made a good tag-team handing out goods – and smiles.

Gorgeous Kyle Lowder of Bold & the Beautiful told Greg In Hollywood he was happy to help: “This is the best. We’re so blessed to be able to do what we do for a living and I’ve always felt that it’s not just a responsibility but an obligation to make sure that we give back and do whatever we can to help out in whatever aspects we can. I love doing stuff like this. It feels good.”

Daniel Goddard even brought his own camera along to record some of the event.

Michael Muhney was the life of the party and after most of the goods were handed out, clowned around with co-stars and showed off what he insists were unimpressive muscles. I disagree!

“I love people,” Michael said. “I’m as gregarious person and it’s nice to interact. It’s good for a person to be involved in charity from time to time so they remind themselves that people aren’t just statistics in a newspaper. If you get one-on-one with folks, you kind of remind yourself to be a lot more compassionate about what’s going on around you and it might remind you to be more charitable.”

It was great to meet Eric Martsolf who joined Days of Our Lives two years ago after spending six years on Passions. He feels lucky to be working and to be helping: “It’s a great day, my first time doing this. You get addicted to doing stuff like this because, selfishly, it makes you feel wonderful about what you have and what we take for granted. We’re really blessed so why not bridge the gab between people who have a lot and people who don’t have a lot. The disparity is just crazy, there’s no middle class anymore.”

Michael Muhney looks to be auditioning for the next chapter of The Incredible Hulk!

Eric Martsolf and Kyle Lowder have something unusual in common: both have played Brady Black on Days of Our Lives.

Veteran daytime stars Dan Diamont and Heather Tom of Bold and the Beautiful were part of the team of helpers.

General Hospital’s Carolyn Hennesy, a 2010 Emmy nominee, was also among those on hand. Look for my interview with her tomorrow!

  2. I’m glad the soap stars volunteer, it’s a shame it’s for the hateful, homophobic, anti-gay Salvation Army.
